This publication is a self-directed language program for people who wish to improve their English pronunciation through the study of its stress-timed nature.

A small percentage of language learners are born with what many people would call a "musical ear", i.e., the ability to hear and imitate perfectly, or nearly so, the individual sounds, the stress, the rhythm, and the intonation of a new language. We other unfortunate people who do not have this gift have to be shown how to listen to a new language, and we have to be taught how to produce the new sounds.

The difference between stressed and unstressed syllables in English is much greater than in most other languages. Rhythm and Unstress deals with this more challenging aspect of English.
